Fowl Cay, The Exumas

5* out of 5 stars

Unwind in the sun, take a dip, go fishing, eat well – do it all on your escape to Fowl Cay Resort. This private island holiday experience in the Bahamas’ picturesque Exumas chain lets you avoid the crowds, the passing ships and the neighbouring resorts in favour of secluded bliss. The Exumas is a mini archipelago consisting of 365 islets that cover 120 miles of warm, tropical ocean. Their inherent beauty is unrivalled and makes a dream setting for your luxury getaway.

Stunning white-sand beaches and an inner topography teaming with lush flora characterise Fowl Cay’s 50-acre private island. Its accommodation is limited to just six luxury villas, resulting in an ambience of privacy and exclusivity, and the villas’ configurations of one, two or three bedrooms mean there’s something for all holiday types, from family fun to couples. Each spacious, exquisitely appointed villa will be stocked with breakfast, lunch and snacking supplies in preparation for your arrival, and boasts a full kitchen as standard.

Guests have access to tennis, bocce and horseshoe courts; kayaks and other beach toys plus snorkel and watersport gear. Also included are a personal motorboat and golf cart, so exploring your new tropical territory is convenient and fun. Planning your day is easy too. You can prepare your own breakfast; a resort chef prepares a lunch picnic and your villa host provides a cooler and fresh towels. After a leisurely day on the water, pay the Hill House a visit in time for cocktail hour and a delicious meal of fresh local seafood.
